I expect that this has already been debated to death - I am lazy to trawl through a search - sorry.

Happened that I got into a debate about bullets today so I searched the latest version of the NRA Rule Book and grabbed the relevant text. [size=13]158gr RN or SWC bullets (but, interestingly, it does not specifically mention lead - can we use158gr jacketed 357 bullets?):-[/size]

[size=13]P9 ■ 2020 NRA PRECISION PISTOL RULEBOOK[/size]

[size=13] 3.3 Distinguished Revolver - The revolver must be capable of chambering and firing a 158-grain round nose or Semi-Wadcutter .38 Special cartridge. It must be a factory manufactured revolver with no external modifications except for stocks which may be modified or changed because of the size of the competitor’s hand or to facilitate loading. Except for stocks and the honing of the sear or sear notch to make a more crisp trigger, and maintain a 2 1/2 lb. minimum trigger pull, no external or internal modification may be made to the revolver as manufactured and sold by the factory of origin. No parts may be removed from the revolver, either externally or internally, nor may any part be added, with the exception of milling the cylinder to accommodate moon clips. Specifically prohibited is any system of recoil control based upon compensators, barrel venting, barrel porting or weighted grips. Exposed holes that have been drilled and tapped for mounting of a scope are not considered to be an external modification. [/size]

[size=13]P10 ■ 2020 NRA PRECISION PISTOL RULEBOOK[/size]

[size=13] (a) Trigger- Must have single and double action capability and must be capable of lifting 2 1/2 lbs when the revolver is cocked for single action firing. Triggers will be weighed. Any trigger, sold by the manufacturer of the revolver, without modification, may be used. [/size]
[size=13] (b) Sights- Fixed or adjustable rear sights may be used. An Adjustable front sight is not allowed. [/size]
[size=13] (c) Barrel- Length not to exceed six and one- half inches. (6 1/2”) [/size]
[size=13] (d) Stocks- Except as set forth above, the right and left stocks must be mirror images of each other. [/size]
[size=13] [color=#ff0000][b](e) Ammunition - Any safe .38 caliber ammunition using the 158 grain round nose or Semi-Wadcutter bullet only. [/b][/color][/size]
[size=13] (f) The following are not allowed. Trigger shoes, compensators of type or design; any external trigger stop device; any internal trigger stop not originally installed by the factory as original equipment in stock revolvers of the same make and model; tape on the stocks or stocks flared at the base.   [/size]
